For the mid west guys! Looks like a fun place to look around, the ad says he has over 1100 cars and trucks, projects and parts.

Happy hunting!

I just found out that the '41 Chevy winch truck that we had for sale is going to Great Bend to Nobody's Auto. New owner though. Small world huh? JP

Delivered the '41 Chevy winch truck today. Chad was good to work with. Look up his Facebook page for a video tour of the salvage yard . And he just bought the salvage yard next door full of similar vehicles.

Do they let your walk around the place?

We had about 5 minutes while he used his payloader with pallet forks to move the winch truck to another part of the salvage yard. If you look on YouTube under "Nobody's Show" he has short videos where he walks around the salvage yard pointing out vehicles. He says if you make a request about certain vehicles he might be able to showcase them in a future video.

He has everything is some kind of order. Neat, straight rows. No grass, weeds or bushes. Similar vehicles grouped together. Well organized.

This 5-window 1/2-ton A-D with chrome grille and bright w/s and window reveals looks worth saving. Especially if it has a title.

I don't think it has any axles under it though...

I watched a couple of his YouTube vids. Seems like a nice guy. Fairly knowledgeable.

Watched American Pickers on Monday. Who do I see but Chad Ehrlich from the afore mentioned Nobody Else's Auto Salvage, and his daughter purchasing a 40's era Ford cabover. Same truck he's building for his daughter and that's on his web site and show. Small world.
